the poles are halyards for flags(or pennants). Present 
lighting of the square consists of high poles at the

across from the square and continue east and west. 
Incidentally, these fixtures in the blocks east on Post 
have the decorative elements of the post painted "gold". 
Stockton Street lights are tall single arm florescent 
tube type. The Committee is concerned about adding more 
high lights of a new and fifth character inside the square 
which may be incompatible with other existing lighting. 
The entire problem of lighting Union 'Aquare should be put 
in the hands of a qualified lighting consultant. The 
Committee will meet with the Park and Recreation, Planning 
and Public Works Departments to review the proposal and 
discuss the problems.

Presented by: George Rockrise, Archt. (ROMA) 
Paul Kennon, Archt. (CRS) 

This new extension of City College, located on the west 
side of 4th Street between Mission and Jessie streets, 
will serve educational programs related to business and 
commerce. 

The facility will operate daytime and evening. 

The building of shallow depth is eight stories high. 
The long northeast side faces 4th Street and Yerba 
Buena Center. The ground floor of colonate gallery 
effect on the street, will contain the admissions offices 
and information center, a "commons" space and a bookstore. 
The upper floors will contain classroom and laboratory spaces. 
The basement will contain a restaurant and instructional - 
working kitchens. Elevators, stairs and other core elements 
are at the rear of the building. A roof terrace is proposed. 

The schematic design was presented in terms of floor plans 
and model. The building is of reinforced concrete frame. 
At the first floor columns and second floor spandrel are 
exposed. Above that level the entire building (except for 
core area) was encased in bronze tinted glass with minimal 
mullion expression. The model gave no impression of what 
occurred of the structure behind this sheath of glass. The 
Committee expressed concern for the severe, unadorned 
character of the facade and the general lack of architectural

Some modifications of the building had been: made since the 
first meeting. The core area was reduced in height and the 
ends had been shortened so as not to project over the sidewalk. 
On the model the columns and spandrels were visible behind the 
glass facade as light colored elements. Vertical louvered 
blinds of light color are to be located just inside the glass. 
This will generally lighten the appearance of the building. 
The facade glass is to be Solar Bronze #9. The Committee 
urges that the exposed spandrel above the first floor have 
an ornamental textured quality. 

Various mediums of art enrichment are proposed; including an 
ornamental sculptured main entrance enclosure, sculpture and 
murals in the "Commons" area of the first floor, and a stained 
glass skylight over the restaurant area of the basement. The 
architect was referred to the Visual Arts Committee for their 
review of these proposals.

There is a demand for additional general safety

"engineered" solution consisting of 25' and 30' high 
poles with mercury vapor type luminal* res. Included with 
the poles are halyards for flags(or pennants). Present 
lighting of the square consists of high poles at the 
perimeter with a single arm light over the sidewalk. On 
the streets surrounding the square are lights of various 
types. Many short ball -head type fixtures occur on 
Powell Street in front of the St. Francis Hotel. "Path 
of Gold" type (painted green) are on Powell, north and 
south of the Union Square block. "Path of Gold" fixtures, 
again painted green, occur on Post and Geary sidewalks

across from the square and continue east and west. 
Incidentally, these fixtures in the blocks east on Post 
have the decorative elements of the post painted "gold". 
Stockton Street lights are tall single arm florescent 
tube type. The Committee is concerned about adding more 
high lights of a new and fifth character inside the square 
which may be incompatible with other existing lighting. 
The entire problem of lighting Union Aquare should be put 
in the hands of a qualified lighting consultant. The 
Committee will meet with the Park and Recreation, Planning 
and Public Works Departments to review the proposal and 
discuss the problems.

TRANSIT TASK FORCE 

1. Fountain, United Nations Plaza Phase III 

', 

Presented by: Donald Carter, Joint Venture Architects 

Jack Baron, Project Manager, Transit Task 
Force. 

United Nations Plaza (BART Civic Center Station) is located 
at the junction of Fulton and Leavenworth Streets with 
Market Street. The Plaza is roughly a triangular area 
formed by the closure of Fulton and Leavenworth. Fulton 
Street between Leavenworth and Hyde is to be closed to 
form a mall approaching City Hall. The entrance to the 
BART station occurs at the west side of the Plaza. 

The fountain is located in the northeasterly portion of 
the Plaza. The west and southerly edge is depressed 
approximately 2 feet below the general level of the 
Plaza which slopes up to the west. The fountain is formed 
by 76 variously shaped granite blocks and slabs, precisely 
arranged to form the whole composition. Beginning below 
water level the forms progressively rise to various heights 
in and around the water to a height 6+ feet at the northwest 
corner. Horizontal surfaces of the granite is a wire cut 
texture. Some vertical faces have a rough broken face with 
the quarry drill holes remaining on the plane of fracture.

The water effect of the fountain is a programmed sequence 
which simulates a tidal flow rising and lowering approximately 
a foot which at each phase exposes or covers granite forms 
in the bottom of the pool. The incoming tidal action is a 
strong surge of gushing and splashing water followed by an 
ebbing and gradual withdrawal of water from the basin. 
Portions of the bottom of the basin are completely exposed 
as the tide recedes.

to Fulton Mall. A square flattop type with provision 
for chain attachment is for use at Hyde and Market and 
other locations for pedestrian control. 

The flagpoles are bronze with tapered entasis. They are 
80' tall with a diameter of 16" at .the base, and have a 
bronze base. They carry the national ensign and the U.N.

HETCH HETCHY WATER AND POWER (cont) 

B. Fillmore (Near Sutter Street) - This building is sub- 
terranean except for a stair tower. The roof will be 
developed as a terrace to serve a future adjacent housing 
development. The stair tower could be developed with bas- 
relief as art enrichment. 

C. Laguna Honda (Laguna Honda Hospital) - This substation 
serves the Twin Peaks tunnel. The building located 
behind the hospital laundry is a one-story structure 
of concrete painted to match adjacent buildings. 

D. Randolph (Near 15th Ave. and Byxbee) - The building is 
concrete, one-story and scaled to the size of adjacent 
dwellings. It is adjacent to a P.G.&E. substation. The 
front is attractively fenced. The P.G.&E. has indicated 
a willingness to replace a portion of existing adjacent 
C.L. fencing to match the new fencing of this building. 
Planting is proposed at the front. 

The Committee urges that a bas-relief treatment of the front 
facade be considered as a means of relieving the plainness 
of the concrete. 

E. Judah (Near 32nd Ave.) - This 25' wide concrete building is 
low in relation to adjacent buildings. The facade is 
painted concrete. Fencing and planting is proposed at the 
front. A recessed wall at the entrance could be developed 
for art enrichment. 

F. Taraval - This building is essentially identical to Judah.

Presented by: Kevin Brown, Owner 

Baker St at this location is to steep for normal street traffic. 
The owner's house is the single residence which faces Baker St in 
this block. The owner proposes to construct a garage and desires 
access from the street. The street is now paved with cobblestones, 
and has pockets with tree plantings. The owner will install an asphalt 
driveway, cover the resulting cut slopes with cobblestones taken 
from the street, and add planting. 

Action recommended: Approval 

8. Channel Pump Station Phase II 

Job No. 3663 

The design at this Phase closely follows the approved Phase I design. 
The building is concrete with infilled panels of masonry. Landscape 
plans were presented and are excellent. As the roof is conspicuous 
fron the Southern Freeway, art enrichment is proposed in the form of 
a special decorative pattern on the roof consisting of concentric 
and overlapping circular bands of colored gravel which generate from 
the roof drain locations. The designers were directed to the Art 
Enrichment Committee for their review. 

Recommended action: Approval 

9. 22nd St. West of Arkansas St. - Occupy Portion Phase I 

of Sidewalk area with retaining wall, stairway, 
balcony, and overhang 

Presented by: Mrs Helen Blakkan, owner 

This part of 22nd St is not improved as a street as an abrupt cliff 
rises up from Arkansas. A sidewalk presently exists along the south 
side with steps up from Arkansas. A portion of the street in this 
block has been improved by adjacent owners as a driveway and parking 
area. Plantings of trees and shrubs have been placed on the slope and 
bluff above Arkansas St, and are maintained by the owners. 
The requested encroachment does not impair the present or probable use 
of the street. Certain details of the proposed retaining wall and 
stairway must be resolved at Phase II.

The monument of granite is approximately 35' high. A 6' high base 
supports a column topped by a capital upon which stands a bronze 
statue of "Winged History" holding an open book inscribed with the 
numbers MCML. Standing on the base is a bronze figure of a miner 
carrying a pick and waving the Flag. On two opposite sides of the 
base are water basins with drains. Above these basins are niches 
which originally housed drinking fountain devices. Below these 
basins at the pavement are shallow basins ornamented with bronze elements 
On the other opposing sides of the base are incriptions commemorating 
the admission of this State to the Union and dedication to the 
"Native Sons of the Golden West". 

The monument was given to the City in 1896 by Mayor James Phelan. 
The base and column were designed by Willis Polk. The bronze figures 
and ornaments were executed by Douglas Til den. The monument was 
originally located on an island at the intersection of Mason Street 
and Market Street. In 1948 the monument was moved to a glade in 
Golden Gate Park. 

B. RESPONSES AT PUBLIC HEARING. 



Nine members of the public responded to the question of relocating 
the monument. Responses in sequence were as follows: 

1. Mr. Gabriel Sheridan speaking for the Native Sons of the Golden 
West spoke of the history of the monument. He urged that the 
monument be placed at the intersection Fulton and Hyde on the 
Fulton Mall west of United Nations Plaza. This proposal was

Memorandum 

CD Public Hearing 29 March 74 

coupled with a proposal that the Bufano "Peace" statue now at 
the Airport be located in UN Plaza. (Note: The Bufano 
"Peace" statue is not part of any consideration of this 
Public Hearing.) A plan showing this proposal was passed to 
the Commissioners. This is attached as Exhibit No. 1. 

2. Mr. Robert Downing Olson supported Mr. Sheridan's proposal. 

3. Mr. Louis Pallandini seconded the Sheridan proposal and stated 
that the monument was to be moved only temporarily to Golden 
Gate Park. 

4. Ms. Tina Hoffman indicated that she had many communications 
supported the Sheridan proposal. 

5. Mr. W. Perazzo supported the Sheridan proposal. 

6. Ms. Eleanor C rabtree of the S. F. Women's Clubs indicated that 
organization's support of the Sheridan proposal. 

7. Mr. George H. Cabaniss, Jr. supported the Sheridan proposal. 

8. Ms. Gerda Fulder of the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council 
supported the Sheridan proposal. 

9. Mr. Thomas Zaragaza, past President of NSGW urged that the 
monument be brought back to Market Street, preferably to 
UN Plaza. In response to a questions from Commissioner 
McCormick, he indicated that there might be other possible 
locations. 

Mr. Jack Baron, Project Manager, Transit Task Force, indicated that money 
to relocate the monument might be available when the Market Street project 
is completed. 

Commissioner Callanan asked Mr. Sheridan if any other locations might be 
suitable. Mr. Sheridan responded that locations at Van Ness Avenue or 
Post Street on Market Street might be considered. 

Commissioner Sotomayor suggested the monument could go back to the island 
at Mason Street and Market Street. 

Commissioner Asawa suggested a location at 17th and Castro. The responses 
and comments having been concluded, the Hearing was adjouned at approxi- 
mately 3:30 p.m. 

C. RESPONSE FROM PUBLIC AGENCIES . 

This Chairman requested comment from the Recreation and Park Department, 
the Dept. of Public Works, the Landmarks Commission and the Transit Task 
Force on the proposal to relocate the Phelan Monument to Market. Replies 



Memorandum 

CD Public Hearing 29 March 74 

C RESPONSE FROM PUBLIC AGENCIES (cont) 

were received from Mr. Joseph Caverly, General Manager, Recreation and 
Parks Dept. and from Mr. Myron Tatarian, Director of Public Works. These 
replies are attached as Exhibits 2 and 3. 

Mr. Jack Baron of the Transit Task Force responded verbally at the Hearing. 
No reply was received from the Landmarks Commission. 

D. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

The monument is of historic importance to San Francisco and should be 
relocated to a site on/or adjacent to Market Street. 

The monument is now under control of the Parks and Recreation Department. 
Permission of that Commission must be secured before relocation. The staff 
of the Department have no objections to the removal of the monument to 
Market Street. The estimated cost of relocation and refurbishing is 
$55,000., subject to the final design requirements of any selected site. 
There are no funds budgeted for this work at this time. 

Following are comments on proposed and possible locations: 

1. The proposed location for the monument at the center of Fulton Mall 
is not suitable as it would impair the view of City Hall from 
Market Street. 

2. The location on the island at Mason Street is too small to accommodate 
the momument without conflict with other elements on the island, i.e., 
light standard, signals and pedestrian movement. 

3. At Van Ness Avenue there is no adequate space at any corner without 
pedestrian conflict. 

4. The island at the intersection of Post Street and Market Street could 
accommodate the monument if Post Street is permanently closed at 
Montgomery Street. 

5. The 17th (Market Street) and Castro Street site is perhaps too remote 
from downtown to be suitable. 

6. At Franklin Street and Market Street an island in the middle of Market 
Street is of suitable size to receive the monument. 

7. The node at the west side of the Grove Street-Hyde Street intersection 
is of suitable size to receive the monument. 

8. A location on the center line of Market Street at the Embarcadero Plaza 
would be suitable. 



Memorandum 

CD Public Hearing 29 March 74 

The original drinking fountain devices on the monument are apparently lost. 
They would no longer satisfy Health Department requirements in any event. 
Any discharge from the upper basins to the lower basins for animal watering 
would certainly be considered unsanitary today. Specially designed water 
fountains would be required to comply with sanitary requirements. 

No final determination of location can be made until design studies for each 
site have been prepared. Such studies should be prepared by the Department 
of Public Works or the Market Street Joint Venture Architects.

Art Commission, City and County of San Francisco 

From: David Mayes, Chairman 

Civic Design and Planning Committee 

Re: Meeting of May 20, 1974 (Commission meeting of 3 June 1974) 

Present: McCormick and Mayes 

The Committee met at 1:30pm in Room 400, 101 Grove Street. Six sub- 
missions were reviewed, and action taken on each as noted. The meeting 
concluded at 3:15pm. 



AIRPORTS COMMISSION 

1. Modifications to Concrete Guardrail , Upper Level Phase I, II & III 

Terminal Roadway 

Presented by: Jason Yuen, Architect, S.F.I. A. 

The original rail± n g enclosed an open area in the roadway. 
With the addition of a "Valet Parking" booth the adjacent 
area is now used by pedestrians , thus requiring a higher 
railing. A 12" high section of concrete is to be added 
at the top of the rail, and is compatible with the present 
rail . 

Action recommended: Approval 

PUBLIC WORKS 

2. Jones St. South of California St., east sidewalk with Phase I, II, III 

planter boxes, etc. 

Presented by: Clifford Wilson, Architect 

McSweeny & Schuppel 

The previously approved design of the California-Jones 
Apartments had the sidewalk developed with steps. The 
steps have been deleted and replaced with a sidewalk of 
serpentine form. The areas along the sidewalk are exposed 
aggregate finish. 

Action recommended: Approval

3. Dudley Stone School - Reconstruction Phase III 

Presented by: Norman Karasick, Bureau of Arch. 

J.T.Siddoway - Philip Choy , Archt. 

This is a Field Act reconstruction. Terra cotta ornamenta- 
tion has been replaced with plaster cornices and textured 
plaster frieze panels. The design as such is acceptable, 
however, the Committee is concerned that the plaster cor- 
nices have not been flashed to prevent the penetration 
of water through probable cracking of the plaster. Though 
this question is more technical than aesthetic, the 
Committee feels that the reconstruction may be a waste in 
the long run unless flashings are provided. 

Action recommended: Disapproval , pending 

revision of details. 



PRIVATE 

4. Candlestick Park - Advertising in exterior areas Phase 

Presented by: Greg Creveling 

Promotion Director, Candlestick Park 

The proposal is to add advertising panels to the various 
entrance sign structures , to the information panels at 
the bottom of the escalators , and suspended from the ceiling 
along the several galleries ringing the stadium. The Com- 
mittee suggested that Mr. Creveling confer with the Architect 
for his comments. The submission was informational only at 
this time. No action is required. 

COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT 

5. Social Science Classroom & Laboratory Building Phase III 

Cloud Hall East. 

Presented by: John Pflueger, Milton T. Pflueger, AIA 

The final design is faithful to the earlier approvals. The 
proposed "sculpture terrace" will be generally paved under 
the general contract, except for the "sculpture garden" area. 
A wall enclosing a part of the north terrace of the building 
is to be "enriched" by the college art students. An excellent 
landscaping plan has been developed, which will be implemented 
by the College Horticulture Department.

From: David Mayes, Chairman 

Civic Design and Planning Committee 

Re: Meeting of June 17, 1974 (Commission meeting of July 1, 1974) 
Present: Commissioners McCormick and Mayes 

The Committee met at 1:35 PM in Room 400, 101 Grove St. Thirteen sub- 
missions were reviewed, and action taken on each as noted. The meeting 
concluded at about 4:15 PM.

TRANSIT TASK FORCE 

2. West Portal Playground Recreation Building - Phase I, II & III 

Ulloa & Lenox 

Presented by: Jack Baron, Transit Task Force 

Howard Grant, Reid & Tarics Assoc. 

This building is located over the West Portal Transit 
Station in a playground being reconstructed by BART. 
The building consists of a recreation-meeting room, 
toilet rooms, and supervisors office. The building 
of concrete and glazed block is unusually severe and 
inhospitable. The recreation-meeting room is without 
normal windows which produces the character of a "cell" 
rather than a friendly space for human use. Indestruc- 
tbility may be a virtue in this type of building, but 
this has produced a severely dehumanized building. A 
review of program and objectives must be had with the 
agencies involved. 

Action recommended: None, pending 

discussion

3. Ocean Ave. & Phelan Ave. Rechannelization Phase I 

Pedestrian Bridge 

Presented by Gerald Costanzo, Bu. of Engineering 

This bridge across Ocean Ave. is located in the area of 
City College. Ocean Ave. is being widened 30' in con- 
nection with the Muni Railway improvement program. The 
bridge will be 228' long, the longest in San Francisco. 
Steps at the center descend to trolley stops on islands 
in the center. The bridge is concrete with metal railings. 

Action recommended: Approval. 

4. Francisco Jr. High School - Academic Building Phase I & II 

Presented by: David Burness, Architect 

Norman Karasick, Bu. of Arch. 

This is a Field Act reconstruction. The present terra- 
cotta cornice and frieze are being removed. They will be 
replaced with an aluminum cornice and flashing above 
plaster panels reflecting the modulation of the original 
frieze. It is required that a greater articulation 
of textural quality be develedop in the flashing and 
plaster panels before submission of Phase III. 

Action recommended: Approval. 

5. Daniel Webster School - New Academic Building Phase II & III 

Pesented by: Robert Wong, A. I. A. 

Norman Karasick, Bu. of Arch. 

The Field Act criteria require the demolition of the 
original brick building. The new structure is steel 
frame with wood floors and wall panels developed into an 
orderly and handsome building. Windows are tinted Lexan. 
An attractive entrance court is part of the reconstruction. 
The building is fully landscaped with an excellent choice of 
hardy materials. (Note - Phase I was approved by Res. 73-177.)

The parapet flashing detail previously disapproved 
has been resolved and is now acceptable. 

Action recommended: Approval. 

7. Lake Merced Recreational Development - Vicinity of 

Brotherhood Way Phase II & III 

Presented by: Walter Kocian, Landscape Arct., 

Bu. of Eng. 

Ths project is located just south of Brotherhood 
Way and west of Lake Merced Blvd. The development is 
primarily a grassy picnic area with access paths from 
the parking area and bikeway to the existing bridge 
structure with some picnic tables and benches. The new 
parking alignment results in a second large grass area 
and eliminates an existing unsightly and excessive parking 
area. Access to the shoreline will remain in its natural 
state which is predominately low coastal planting and sand 
paths. This is an excellent scheme deserving of praise. 

Action recommended: Approval.

Re: Committee Meeting of 21 August 74 (Commission Meeting of 4 Sept 74) 

Present: Commissioners. McCormick, Mayes and Volkman 

The Committee met at 1:30 PM in Room 400, 100 Grove St. Nine submissions 
were reviewed at this seating, and action taken as noted under each item. 

HETCH HETCHY POWER AND WATER 

Power Improvement Program 

1. Substation Building CARL Phase II 

Clayton St near Carl at west portal of Sunset Tunnel 

Presented by: Wm R. Glass and Carol Glass - Bechtel Corp 
Stan Davis - HHP&W 

This entire substation is underground. The surface improvements 
consist of a terrace space at the hatch for parking of service 
truck, a seating area with trees and planting, stairs and ramps. 
The ramps provide a better connection to the present walk thru 
the landscaped right-of-way. It is suggested that the area around 
the trees on the terrace be paved with a permeable material to allow 
watering and reduce maintenance, and that the stair width be reduced 
and the planter box be enlarged. 

Action recommended: Approval 

2. Substation Building JUDAH Phase II 

Judah St west of 32nd Ave 

Presented by: Same as No. 1 

There has been some rearrangement of the front facade and the addition 
of a penthouse at the rear of the building to house air intake fans. 
The building is painted concrete. A pastel color will be selected to 
be compatible with adjecent homes. 

It is urged that the front soffit be aligned in height to match the 
soffit of the building to the west.

Re: CD&P Comm Mtg 21 Aug 74 

3. Substation Building TARAVAL Phase II 

Taraval St west of 32nd Ave 

Presented by: Same as No. 1 

The first paragraph of comments on JUDAH also apply to this building. 

Action recommended: Approval 

4. Substation Building RANDOLPH Phase II 

Randolph at Bixbee and 19th Ave 

Presented by: Same as No. 1 

This building has three faces exposed to public view. The facades 
are to be textured concrete with sandblasted spandrel bands and 
"form board" patterned wall surfaces. The patterns are presently 
confused and disorganized in their arrangement. 

Action recommended: Approval, 

subject to restudy of texture pattern 

Comments regarding "art enrichment " of the various Substation Buildings 
of the Power Improvement Program of Hetch Hetchy Power and Water: 

There are 6 buildings in this program, each with a budget of $50,000. 
This produces a $6,000. total budget for "art enrichment". Two of 
these buildings are below ground. One is on the grounds of Laguna 
Honda Hospital and is not being considered for "enrichment". The remaining 
three are all located in residential areas. This Committee feels that 
these buildings should be as unobtrusive as possible in order to have 
as little negative impact on the neighborhoods as possible , and that 
$1000 - $2000 per building would probably not provide any "art" of 
substantial nature. We therefore propose a alternative use of the funds. 

Hetch Hetchy Power and Water does not have a well designed symbol or 
plaque to identify their various facilities and installations. 
We propose that an artist or graphic designer be selected by commission 
or competition to design such a symbol which could be executed in metal 
and/or other materials for use now and in the future on these and other 
structures of the Hetch Hetchy Power and Water.

7. Franklin Square Rehabilitation Phase I 

Presented by: Walter Kocian, Bur. of Engineering 

This Park is an old Square with good clumps of tall existing 
trees. The central green grass area has been recently been 
used as a soccer field. The Park lies between the old White 
Front store and Muni Vehicle Storage area and is just west 
of Potrero Avenue. 

The rehabilitation consists of an automatic irrigation system, 
a small children's play area, picnic table areas, revised path 
system and new tree planting. The central green is to be 
reshaped and seeded to provide a smooth playing surface. Funds 
are insufficient to level the area due to the rock subsurface. 

Action recommended: Approval 

8. Precita Park Play Area Rehabilitation Phase I 

Presented by: Walter Kocian, Bur. of Engineering 

The existing play area is a portion of a long narrow Park 
located at the base of Bernal Heights and just soutyi of Army 
Street. It is to be rehabilitated in conjunction with the 
construction of an automatic irrigation system. 

The rehabilitation will redefine and enlarge the existing 
sand area to accommodate a wood slide structure, swings and 
whirls. Concrete benches, tables and stools will replace 
the existing vandalized park benches. The poorly kept toddler's 
sand pit will become a play fort. Sand areas are planned for 
the existing play pieces that remain in the grass area. Fund 
will not allow is to relocate all pieces. Excess excavated 
material will be used to extend the existing mound (east end) 
around the play area. Additional trees and shrubs will further 
enclose the play area and act as a terminus for the long grass 
green. New paths are necessary to relate the play area to the 
neighborhood street pattern. The plan reflects the ideas of 
the neighborhood groups.

Presented by: Walter Kocian, Bu. of Eng. 

This project consists of improvements and additions to the 
existing run-down play facility. A linkage between the 
existing sand area and the existing picnic area on an upper 
level is proposed. The slope allows for a desirable play 
experience which is achieved with a slide and slide 
structure sited in the existing trees. A bridge over the 
path connects to another slide structure on the sand area. 
If funds allow tire swings and bar exercising equipment,

Henrik Bull - Bull, Field, Volkmann & 
Stockwell , Architects 



The old school is being razed. The new school will be 
located in the area of the present playfield, back from 
Castro St. Classrooms have been staggered to open up 
views to the south and east. A "play structure" recently de 
developed by the community is being preserved. The scheme 
relates very well with the site and the surrounding 
residential area.

CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND 
Golden Gate Park 



Children's Playground in Golden Gate Park, which dates back to 1888, 
has the distinction of being one of the first playgrounds in America. 
Only the Joseph Lee Playground in the Boston Commons is older, yet 
when it was established the only improvement it had was a sand box, 
while Children's Playground had an extensive layout of play equipment 
at a very early date. The earliest photographs of Children's Playground 
date from 1900 and illustrate a number of types of equipment many of 
which are identical in design to those which are still used there. 

The scope of the design contract to rehabilitate and improve Children's 
Playground is $200, 000. These funds cover the improvements east of 
the merry-go-round and do not include restoring the Sharon Building - 
the old stone building which was badly burned about a year ago - or 
the merry-go-round. Approximately 60-70% of the present equipment 
in the playground would be rehabilitated and reused. The existing barn 
would remain in its present location. 

DESCRIPTION OF IMPROVEMENTS 

One of the most dramatic changes in the design proposal would be in the 
main approach to the facility to the east of the Sharon Building. There, 
rather than a vast expanse of flat asphalt, will be a pond with access to 
the children's area by a gently arching wood bridge. To the north of the 
bridge the pond has stepping stones and a paved area and bench to sit on 
at the water's edge. A water jet provides activity in the space and a low 
waterfall drops from the south edge of the bridge. The lower pond pro- 
vides a moat-like border to the animal enclosure forming a space where 
animals, children and parents can mingle together outside of the corral 
that encloses the present barn. This arrangement is similar to the re- 
cently improved children's zoo at Fleishhacker Zoo in San Francisco. 
The fenced space between the edge of the corral and the water is approx- 
imately double the present area defined by the corral. 

To the north of the barn is a circular play space for toddlers and young 
children which extends beyond the bounds of the existing straight row of 
trees, benches and sand areas. Some of the trees which now border the 
lawn will be retained within the sand play area. Comfortable wood-backed 
benches facing south will be set along the edge of the curving walk which 
borders the play area. 

The space for the youngest toddlers is east of this area and sheltered 
from the wind by existing Monterey Pines and is interconnected to the 
larger circle by an arched bridge with a short tunnel under it. Very 
small scale equipment will be in this sand area. 



The major new play area is the 160' in diameter central activity area 
which is the focal point of the design. It extends up into the edge of the 
existing wooded hillside which slopes down from Kesar Drive. This 
would give topographic interest to the playground and allow slides and 
other equipment to be built into the slope - an arrangement which is 
much safer and more attractive. Most of the existing slides will be 
incorporated into this hillside design. A major new play structure 
will incorporate existing elements such as the tall spiral slide and 
swings. Small wood pavilions are also a part of this structure which 
will gradually step down in elevation to a boardwalk alongside two boats. 
The boats, the use of pilings and the detailing together with the nearby 
pond will give a waterfront, nautical character to this space. 

A semi- circular area at the east edge of the playground will feature 
gymnastics equipment. This will be located very close to the area 
where it now is. 

The proposed design will limit access to three points , two of which 
will have turnstyle entrances with bicycle parking next to the entry 
point. This will prevent bicycles or city vehicles from driving through 
the area as they now do. The third entrance will have removable 
bollards for service vehicles. 

All play areas will be surfaced with sand. Walkway surfaces will be 
asphaltic concrete. Seating areas are set up throughout the playground. 
A considerable amount of new tree planting is proposed, including 
Monterey Pines and 6 Siberian Elms located in the raised circular 
bench-edged planters. This in combination with water and the use of 
the hillside, nearby meadows and soft forms would give a completely 
new feeling to the area while maintaining its historic identity.

Building - 824 Harrison St. Job No. 3702 ' 

Presented by: Al Brezner, S. Iyama & Assoc, AIA 

Description and Comment: The site is the old Lincoln School which is being 
demolished. The new center consists of 3 one-story buildings clustered around 
an interior court. This court is closed off from the exterior by metal grills 
and gates. The site is also entirely enclosed by chain link fencing. This 
creates an inhuman aspect to the front entrance. A tether-ball court is 
jammed in adjacent to the entrance. 

The exterior of the building is extremely dull and box-like in appearance, 
being devoid of articulation and variety of texture. Restudy of this exterior 
, treatment is required.

Description and Comment: This new school at Randall and Chenery Sts. replaces 
existing Fairmont School which is being demolished. The building consists of 
L°?u 3 k ^° st01 7P° ds , at several levels around an open plaza. The character 
of the buildings is rich in form and detail and relate to the scale of the 
neighborhood. The concept is an exciting example of fine architecture. Two 
levels of new play areas have been developed, one related to kindergarten and 
the other to the older group. The pavement of the plaza needs some enrichment 
or the paving, possibly using brick from the old building.

A mezzanine at the rear of this space contains Director's Room and Restrooms with 
entrance from the playground. A basketball court is on the roof accessible from 
the playground. The'drawings do not adequately describe the exterior of the building, 
but are described as scored concrete block. Committee is concerned about the 
. relationship of the Waverly Place facade to adjacent buildings, their lines and 
materials. A better relationship must be achieved. The fence for basketball court 
on the roof must have a character other than chain link.

Review Phase: _£ 



Description and Comment: 

McKinley Square is on the west side of Potrero Hill. 

It commands impressive views of the Downtown area and Twin Peaks from its position 
above the Bayshore Freeway. 

The play area improvements constitute a stage in the overall improvement of the park

apparatus, together with a protected sitting area. It will cater to young children. 
A new stairway will link it to San Bruno Avenue. The slope adjacent to this path 
provides an opportunity for a different type of play experience. The combination

Description and Comment: 

This project is aimed at improving the appearance (ambience) of these two downtown 
blocks on STockton Street. It was initiated by the chamber and is to be paid for 
and supported by the merchants. Unification and standardization of street gurni- 
ture such as trash containers, news racks, and tree planters to contain trees will 
help to accomplish the aim. It is intended also to unify the color on such items 
as sign and signal standards . It will be a utilitarian putty color. 
It is hoped this will spur further action in the downtown area to improve the feeling.

PROPOSAL 



With regard to the proposed memorial portrait 
bust together with the accompanying base and 
pedestal and plinth; the subject being Dr. Jose 
Rizal; the proposed site, Golden Gate Park, the 
f o I I ow i ng applies: 

The memorial pottrait bust is to be modeled in clay, 
-for bronze, slightly over life-size. The bronze 
itself w i I I be somewhere between 15" and 18" high. 

The style of modeling will be of an academic and con- 
ventional straight portrait, draped in accordance with 
the fashion of the day and period of the deceased. 

The work will be a signed and dated bronze, to be 
cast in a California foundry and affixed with the 
foundry mark. 



The pedestal will be designed by the sculptor together 

» with the plague consisting of various names. The 

pedestal will be of rusticated concrete; the base of 
tice Limited to Monumental, Portrait and Industrial Sculpture 



Italian (polished) marble, 13" cube or, if this is 
unavailable, of polished" granite (probably Wisconsin 
or Georq i a ) . 

The bronze portrait v/ill be bolted upon the marble 
base and otherwize affixed in such a way so as to 
preclude clandestine removal. The base, in turn, will 
also be permamently affixed to the pedestal and for 
the reasons above cited. 

Altogether, the representative portrait bust, to- 
gether with the base and pedestal and plinth should 
make quite a handsome public memorial. 

The sculptor assures the Commissioner that proper care 
will govern the design and execution of the proposed 
work throughout. 



The sculptor shall be ready at all times to answer 
all pertinent questions relating to the above.

Applicant/ Agency: Submission/Project: 

Bureau of Building Repair Access for handicapped people to Main t 

Department of Public Works Public Library - Civic Center 



Presented by: Review Phase: 1 _ 

Mr. Richard Berry Von Hunger Groth 

Description and Comment: 

A proposal for a ramp to provide access to the library at its main entrance on Larkin St. 
The presentation is excellent and illustrates a flared ramp of concrete with railings 
of granite running over the existing steps from the entrance plaza level to the library 
floor level. Ramps on either side (end) of the steps from the sidewalk level to plaza 
level complete the sloping walkway or runway from sidewalk to floor level. 

This proposal and 21 others by Mr. Groth were reviewed at a subsequent meeting and it 
was decided that the fundamental question of whether such an approach be a "tacked on" 
item or whether it should be a more comprehensive solution to the problem should be 
*'onsidered by the commission. 

It was considered that if the solution were to be "tacked on" it might be better to be 
frankly temporary (the size of the budget indicates this), but if it were to be a 
solution which is permanent, it should be one which both recognizes the handsomeness 
of'the building facade and is an integral solution of the building and its approach plaza. 

This building which contains so much that is worthwhile to all of us should be one which 
is easily accessible to all and probably most of all to those with physical handicaps. 

Money may be the decider in favor of temporary but there should be something better to 
avoid offense to the eye and the spirit. 

Mr. Groth is to be highly commended for his efforts to solve this problem.

Reid & Tarics Assoc 

She! lie Ross, Facilities Planning, SFUSD 

Description and Comment: The Architects arrived at this review unaware that the project 
at Phase I had been disapproved. 

A subsequent meeting was held in the office of Commissioner Cannon, with Commissioners 
Mayes and McCormick present. The architects were represented by Mrs Campbell, Grant, 
Dr. Alex Tarics and others. Mr. Ross was also present. 

The Committee expressed its earlier concerns about the general appearance of the 
auditorium building, particularly the front facade. The architects agreed to study 
desired changes. 

Subsequently, drawings presented at the Commissi om meeting of 6 Oct, indicated an 
enlarged entrance platform with stairs down to walks around the building, and 
modifications of the front facade. Heavy columns at the side ventillating areas 
which are out sized in relation to the other columns of the facade cause concern, 
and are to be studied. It was also sugguested that the mid level spandrel line 
be extended over the main doors and the height of the doord be raised to meet it.

an attempt to resolve the concerns expressed in earlier discussions, however 
the design was still not acceptable to the Committee. A subsequent drawing 
also fails to develop a design which the Committee can accept. It will take

(S. F. Unified School Dist) Filipino Education Center 

Harrison & Fourth Streets 

Presented by: Richard L. Minner, Archt Review Phase: — __ 

She! lie Ross, SFUSD 



Description and Comment: 

Final drawings of the building conform to the previously approved. design. 

The site is extremely stark and devoid of landscaping except along the northeast 
front and side of the building along Harrison St. A chainlink fence abutts the 
sidewalk with asphalt playground inside. 

To be acceptable a planting area must be developed at the left front of the 
building and the chainlink fence along Harrison St moved back 1' from the side- 
walk to provide a continuous planting strip for Ivy on the fence. A presently 
shown planting space (±8'x40') at the front of the building may be deleted 
with the addition of planting along the building. 



The art enrichment program for this building calls for a mural to be placed 
on the west wall of the building facing the playground. A letter from Mr. Philip 
Calli (17Nov75) indicates that a cost not to exceed 2% of construction cost may 
be applied to this mural and 'planting along Harrison St 1 . It should be noted 
that the Art Commission has not as a normal policy considered 'planting or 
landscaping' as art enrichment. A firm commitment must be had for the monies to 
be applied to the mural. 

Colors for the building are to be reviewed for approval at the time of selection, 
Action Recommended: disapproval 

Conditions: Future approval is subject to the resolution of the 
requirements described above.

Applicant/ Agency: Submission/Project: 

Redevelopment Agency 

Yerba Buena Center - Entertainment 
Center 

Presented by: Ernie Demanti , Archt Review Phase: 

(Architects Associated) 

Lance Buris, Redevelopment Agency 

Description and Comment: Review was had at the office of the Architects, 300 Montgomery 

The structure is on the west side of 3rd St between Howard and Folsom Sts. 
It is a concrete frame structure with a suspended tension roof. It is oval in 
form with the axis north-south. Seating is all around with a capacity of 16,000 
to 19,000. Access is generally by ramps and stairs from the adjoining streets. 
Separate structures at the east corners house administrative offices, ticketing, 
a restaurant and shops. 

->ur items cause concern to the Committee: 

1. The extreme tightness of sidewalk space along Howard St. It is sugguested 
that access to stairs there be set back under the podium level, thus 
providing a wider sheltered space at the sidewalk level. 

2. That the two elevator - stair structures be arranged symetrically in 
relation to columns of the structure of the arena. 

3. That the various elements at the podium level (particularily along Howard 
St) be organized in a more orderly manner. 

4. The separate buildings at the crrner require a strengthening of form to 
be compatible with the scale of the arena structure.
